    usb storage device only mounted once


    hi

    i freshly start my debian etch/gnmome 2.22.3 and plug
    a usb storage device and its perfectly mounted.
    I umount it and, from now on no device will be auto-mounted
    anymore. They are scanned like shown bellow, but
    not auto-mounted. Any tip ???
    Code:
    usb 4-3: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 6
    usb 4-3: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
    scsi3 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
    usb-storage: device found at 6
    usb-storage: waiting for device to settle before scanning

    hi
    this thread does not help because usb device is perfectly automounted
    the 1st time i plug. After umounting/unplugging it does not happen
    again. Then just after new reboot.

    Go into Debians Package Manager and see if pmount is installed. Debian used to use a package called usbmount, but I think it was replaced with pmount. You might want to try reinstalling pmount and see if that fixes it.

    Edit: just read that pmount does not have a automount function so disregard my post. Sorry.
